A giant check for the Radix Center

Everyone loves the giant check.

When the people at Sunmark asked us if they could give one of those giant cardboard checks to the Radix Center for winning the AOA/Sunmark Startup Grant, our response was something along the lines of: "What other sort of check would you give them?!?"

It's true: everyone loves the giant check. And this afternoon, Sunmark CEO Bruce Beaudette and director of marketing David Weinstein stopped by the Radix Center's site in Albany's Grand Street neighborhood to present the money to Scott Kellogg and Stacy Pettigrew.

Thanks again to Sunmark for funding the startup grant. And congratulations to the Scott and Stacy -- we're excited to see their greenhouse and aquaculture system develop.

A few more pics -- of the giant check and the under-construction greenhouse -- after the jump.

Congrats to Scott and Stacy. They are truly leading sustainability at the local level. Check out their book "Toolbox for Sustainable City Living", it's great.

Cheers

Another congrats for Scott and Stacy. You are truly visionary and pragmatic - not a typical combination.

Congratulations to Scott and Stacy! As Stacy's parents we are very proud of the work that they have been doing and their commitment to making a positive difference in this world.

What a brave young woman. Despite all of the hardships she has endured her main focus is to educate herself in order to spend her life in service to others as a doctor. How inspiring.
